On or around April 28th, 2012, the nation and the world learned about another horrible terrorist bombing. It was not an Al Qaeda attack. It was carried out by native born American terrorists who operate with impunity in the city of Miami, Florida.

Today, Cuba Journal received a form letter from the White House, which I reproduce later on in this post. It looks like a political campaign letter.
It failed to condemn the terrorist bombing against Airline Brokers in Miami. SHAME!
I was very disappointed that the president chose to look in the opposite direction when acts of this nature happen in our country.
Here is letter that CJ received today:
May 31, 2012
Thank you for sharing your perspective on American foreign policy towards Cuba. I appreciate hearing from you.
The promotion of democracy and human rights in Cuba is in our national interest and is a key component of our Nation's foreign policy. Measures that decrease dependency of the Cuban people on the Castro regime and promote contacts between Cuban Americans and their relatives in Cuba are means to encourage positive change in Cuba.
My Administration has taken steps to reach out to the Cuban people. Cuban Americans should be able to visit and assist loved ones in Cuba, and that is why I have eased restrictions on family visits and remittances. Cuban-American visitors are our country's best ambassadors for promoting freedom in Cuba.
To increase interaction and the flow of information directly to the Cuban people, I have authorized opening telecommunications links between Cuba and the United States and allowing for the export of donated personal communications devices. We have also helped the Cuban people by expanding the list of humanitarian items that Americans can send to Cuba, as well as expanding the scope of eligible gift parcel donors and donees.
I believe these initiatives benefit our Nation and help support the Cuban people's desire to determine freely their country's future. For more information on this and other important policy issues, I encourage you to visit www.WhiteHouse.gov/issues/foreign-policy.
Again, thank you for writing.
